Rashmika plays Amitabh Bachchan's daughter in GoodBye
The trailer for Vikas Bahl's GoodBye was launched in Mumbai on Tuesday. The film stars Amitabh Bachchan along with Rashmika Mandanna in her Bollywood debut.
Following the event, a clip of Rashmika talking about Big B has been making rounds on the internet. The actor recalls meeting Big B for the first time and how they developed their working relationship on the sets of GoodBye.
Rashmika said, "We started shooting on my birthday and I met him for the first time then. I remember this day clearly as I was waiting for him since I wanted to say hey. While I was standing in the corner, he crossed me and he went away. I wanted to introduce myself but of course, sir was busy thinking about the scene and what to do and not to do."
However, she was surprised when Big B tweeted about her soon after. “One day I entered the sets and everybody was like “Did you check your Twitter?’ and when I did, I saw that Bachchan sir had posted a picture saying Pushpa."
"I am living my dream of working with two icons of Indian cinema” Rashmika added, referring to her collaborations with Allu Arjun and Amitabh Bachchan.
GoodBye tells the story of a family dealing with the demise of a loved one. Amitabh Bachchan plays the family patriarch and his wife is played by Neena Gupta. When Neena’s character passes away, the family comprising of daughter Rashmika and her brother played by Pavail Gulati return home to conduct her last rites.
Besides GoodBye, Rashmika has Pushpa 2 along with Allu Arjun, Mission Majnu with Sidharth Malhotra and Animal with Ranbir Kapoor.
